Opening C00 files

Did your computer fail to open a C00 file? We explain what C00 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your C00 files.

What is a C00 file?

Files that contain the .c00 file extension are created by the WinAce file archiving software. WinAce takes batches of files and compiles them into a single archive file. The archive can then be split into smaller volumes to allow for easier transmission of the file over the Internet and via email.

Each volume of a split file archive is given its own extension in sequence. The .c00 extension is usually given to the first volume of the split file archive.

In order to extract the contents of a split archive file, all of the volumes of the split archive must be present.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
